The town emblem was adopted on Dec 1st 2005 but there is no flag law. The purple flag has a red, green and blue three color town emblem in the center. The town emblem is a stylized M of Minobu. The blue color stands for the people who is making a leap on green earth surrounded by Mt. Minobu and Mt. Fuji, the red color for the brilliant future and the green color for dreams, hopes and full calm. As a whole, it represents an image of the town which is forcefully making a leap.

There's also white circle on the drawing. Does that have a meaning too?

No ,The town Notice No79 does not mention the meaning of white circle.

I see. In the mon the white circle is merely part of the background. Placed on the purple flag it keeps a white background, and fimbration if you will, apparently for better contrast.
